A merry little Christmas
Zooey, Conan and M. Ward. A merry little Christmas, indeed.
(PS - "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" was originally written for one of my favorite movies, Meet Me In St. Louis. Judy Garland's character sings it to her little sister as they spend their last Christmas at home in St. Louis before moving to New York. I love how Tootie cries through the whole song, nervous that Santa won't be able to find them in New York. Imagine how much harder she would have been crying if the song were sung with the darker lyrics songwriter Hugh Martin originally penned: "Have yourself a merry little Christmas, it may be your last...faithful friends who were dear to us, will be near to us no more.")
